FINAL PLACEMENT PROCESS
The Final Placement Week for this academic year is from 14th to 18th December 2020. The placement process typically involves a Pre-Placement Talk in October/ November followed by a visit by the company during Placement Week where they conduct Aptitude Tests, Group Discussions and, Personal Interviews in order to recruit students.
Some companies also include a Personality Profiling round (Psychometric Tests) in their recruitment process. During the Pre-Placement Talk, companies are required to indicate the profiles they will be recruiting for, the locations they are recruiting for and the kind of compensation they will be offering.
The slot that the company will be allocated during the Placement Week will depend upon the preference of the students and the relationship that the company shares with IGIDR. Companies give Pre Placement Talks to the students on campus before the final placement process.
SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS
In addition to final placements, companies and research organizations also take on first year M.Sc. students for summer internships. Interviews for summer interns also take place alongside final placements during the placement week.
The rounds in the summer internship process are similar to the final placement process. However, companies are free to tailor it as they deem fit.
